-republican kentucky senator rand paul. >> i do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks they are paid for. if you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to these workers. when you allow people to be on unemployment insurance for 99 weeks, you're causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy. >> joining me today, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, former white house press secretary and founding partner off-almost said founding father -- founding father and partner of inside agency robert gibbs, congressional reporter for buzz feed and political reporter and white house correspondent at the "huffington post" sam stein. we talked a lot about the pizza versus the pizza box. after the gop autopsy, the republican conviction they didn't actually need to change the product they were selling, they just needed to change the marketing. it's unbelievable me, the whole 47% thing clearly has not made a dent. nowhere do you see that in a more pronounced fashion than republican talking points on unemployment. >> largely, if you ask most members of the gop,
demise. so far the likelihood of a budget deal is anybody's guess as house budget chair paul ryan told "politico," we're talking but it's premature to say anything now. if the parties fail to reach a deal. or more likely if house republicans reject a deal, the government will again shut down on january 15th. and less than a month later on february 7th, the economic bomb that is the debt ceiling is set to go off. i can't believe i have to say both of those things again. with all of this hanging over his head speaker john boehner channeled his newman, what me, worry? approach to congressional deadlines. speaking before the break boehner seems completely nonplussed he provides over the least productive congress since world war ii. >> listen, we have a very divided country and a very divided government. i'm not going to sit here and underestimate the difficulty finding the common ground. there's not as much common ground here as there used to be. >> indeed. why find common ground when one party can spend all of its time railing against the president's health care law. with that the preside
mike lee, from rand paul, from et cetera, you don't hear them right now. as you said, they're making some noises about how we don't want to trade sequester cuts unless there's a firm guarantee amended mandatory spending cuts. we don't want the extension of unemployment insurance. but these are discussions of actual details of a possible budget plan, not the sort of throwing down the gauntlet kind of, we're going to shut the whole joint down, thing we were hearing. you're not hearing that at all. and i think at least temporarily the biggest names in the tea party -- there's 20 people in the house who signed that letter. frankly, those are the last drags in the bottom of the teacup. they don't mean a whole lot. it's the rand pauls, ted cruzs, mike lees who matter. and they are conspicuous by their silent at this point. >> despite all this talk about big government being evil, the people do miss it. the government once it ceases to be available it begins to look pretty good. anyway, you won't find much agreement in the republican party these days, but there is at least some consensus by
secret plan, a paul ryan plan that would replace the affordable care act. can you give us any intel on what that secret plan is? >> i think it's so secret that it hasn't been developed yet. i think the republicans have -- since we passed the affordable care act back in 2010, they have talked about just repeal. repeal, repeal. then they said repeal and replace. but then they had nothing to replace it with. so it is really a bottomless pit of ideas that never seem to come to the surface in the republican caucus. and i think it's because they really don't want to have a solution for those who have been uninsured. the 45 million americans who are uninsured. that is not who they seek to represent. and they're not interested in finding a way to provide them with health insurance. but mind you, all of us, all of us end up paying when the 45 million are uninsured. because the costs of our premiums sky rocket when the uncompensated care is paid for by the hospitals and the insurers. so we're all in this boat together. and we've got to find a way to not have it sink. and the affordable care a
the turnout in the last election because people were so angry, so we had rand paul in detroit yesterday making, you know, an overture to african-americans, opening up the rnc's african-american outreach office. but interestingly enough, i think to david's point, i don't think that's necessarily -- that may be about african-americans in saying, hey, democratic policies failed you. come to us. it may also be for white voters in the suh bushburbs. more about what they perceive as their base. not necessarily about average african-americans. >> hey, look at us. we're not as hateful. we're not as exclusionary as the big bad liberal media, lame stream media makes us out to be. look, we're reaching out to african-americans. where do we go to reach out to them? detroit. that's my problem. detroit. you couldn't go some place elsewhere the message would have some credibility? and you would send someone other than rand paul who was just at howard university condescending to black students there. >> exactly. actually, i have a little shot for you from rand paul i want to play. he was talking about his litt
presidential nominee, paul ryan from wisconsin. and, of course, our beloved canadian senator, now residing in texas, ted cruz. no cameras in this event. but we know what they were talking about. >> we're getting more and more takers than makers in america. and we need to have more makers and less takers in america. if we have more takers, then we're denying people of their ability to make the most of their lives. >> if you raise the minimum wage, the inevitable effect will be number one, young people will lose their jobs. or not be able to get their first jobs. unemployment among young people will go up if the minimum wage goes up as president obama says. unemployment among hispanics, among african-americans, among those struggling to get their first job to climb the economic ladder will go up. >> these guys are just making this stuff up. they're making it up. there is no study anywhere that says for sure unemployment of young people is going to go up if we raise the minimum wage. it's never happened before. you know, it's guys like paul ryan and ted cruz. groups like a.l.e.c. and the repu
patty murray and congressman paul ryan, the budget chairs working on the deal are at least determined to keep the government open and they think they can get the plan together for a vote later this week. one of the final sticking points in the deal could be unemployment. friday the unemployment rate dropped to 7%. that's the lowest since november of 2008. federal benefits expire at the end of the year and it's not clear if an extension would be included in any budget deal. >> i don't think we've reached that point where we've said this is it, take it or leave it. what i hear from patty murray, i spoke to her the other night, negotiations are making progress, moving in the right direction. >> i want to bring in our company, carrie budoff brown, ron fornier. good morning. >> good morning. >> carrie, is getting a deal done, if it does happen this week, a major milestone or is this the smallest possible thing they could do just to keep the government up and running? >> well, it's more significant than the deal that they got two months ago to keep the government running. that was a two-mon

deadline on the federal budget, paul ryan have 11 days to craft a new budget plan. if they fail, the federal government will face a second round of automatic spending cuts and yet another possibility of a shutdown early next year. today our first read team says both sides are optimistic but that talk of a so-called grand bargain no longer on the table. what's being debated between ryan and murray is a very small deal. joining me live now, senior political editor mark murray. i guess you have to get something done small because it seems a lot of bigger things, things that many people thought would move right along have not. >> that's right. after the government shutdown that we had back in october, tamron, probably is the sensible thing to set your sights very low. that seems to be what's going on right now. there is a lot of optimism on capitol hill. it seems all players and everybody want some type of deal. the chatter i'm hearing is that there are issues that need to be resolved but things look bright, at least get a baseline spending number that is the number that would fund
about the role of unemployment benefits, rand paul, this kind of keeps people from getting jobs. the economic data suggests that's not true. that said, it's hard to get house republicans to agree to basically, you know -- withdraw sequester and also increase unemployment benefits in the same two weeks. so i think it's going to be the challenge as we go forward here. >> the washington speak on this is you might get more results if you don't have to have them swallow too many bitter pills at once. the skeptical view that many people have, they're not going to do it. the budget here, as i mentioned to the senator, seems to be a place where republicans don't want to double down. dana, let's listen for a second to something senator rand paul just said. >> what detroit needs to thrive is not washington's domineering hand, but freedom from big government's mastery. to thrive, detroit needs less government and more freedom. >> that is, senator paul in detroit. he gets some points for going there. a lot of congress members would rather ignore detroit, entirely. even though it's the large
. senator rand paul says the best way to get workers back on their feet is to limit the government's role in helping them. >> i do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks that they are paid for. if you extend it beyond that you do a disservice to these workers. there was a study that came out a few months ago and it said if you have a worker that has been unemployed for four weeks and on unemployment insurance and another on 99 weeks, which one would hire. nearly every employer said they would hire the person whose been out of work for four weeks. when you let them be out of work >> what's wrong with him?t >> what do you mean? >> i'm sorry, you have to speak. >> do i have to speak? >> yes. >> explain that to me. >> i can only tell you that -- >> that made no sense. that made no sense. >> crazy. >> can i -- >> that made no sense. that was crazy. i'm sorry. sorry to say that very carefully. crazy. >> a u.s. senator crazy, and you say that carefully? >> explain. someone. >> i just tried to start. >> you went to brown. you went to where. >> never mind. >> oh, my god tell me all these e
be at hand. maybe. there is a catch. it is senator pae eor patty mur is working with paul ryan on this. you might remember him from the big deficit reduction in 2010. he was part of that and he killed it. also the big bipartisan gang of six. he was part of that ena he killed it. he was about part of the grand bargain in 2011 which was killed by paul ryan. so yes, patty murray and paul ryan are reportedly close to a deal that would kill the sequester, get us a budget, and all sorts of reasonable things that everybody in washington says they want. paul ryan's history of working on deals like this is he likes to be seen working on them before he breaks free and calls them impure and kills what he helped to negotiate. i'm not getting excited about this yet. initial reports are positive, long term prospects are dim. even the babiest of babe steps are steps. in a year like this one, a congress like this one, the most meager signs of progress must be nurtured. so you can see like right here i can just... you know, check my policy here, add a car, ah speak to customer service, check on a claim...yo
. >> wait a second. who was that last guy? oh, it's senator rand paul. even though he's being cranky that it took a few tries, he's signed up for obama care. senator paul, you're just like speaker boehner now. congrats. you're both covered. this law is helping more and more people and the right is getting more and more desperate. i have to admit, it's kind of fun to watch. joining me now is congress woman karen bass, democrat from california. and former pennsylvania governor ed rendell. thank you both for being here. >> thanks for having me on. >> our pleasure. >> congresswoman, comparing the right wing fight against obama care to nelson mandela's struggle against apartheid, i mean, what's your reaction? >> well, i just think it's absolutely shameful. i do think you're right in calling it a freakout because they seem to be all over the map. and actually if i was going to make a comparison, i would make the opposite comparison. because i think the struggle for justice which nelson mandela led for so many years is similar and equal to the struggle for health care as a right for people
conference committee led by democratic senator patty murray and paul ryan reportedly getting closer to a deal on a 2014 budget. the temporary funding bill agreed to after october's shutdown expires next month. >>> rob portman says he's optimistic there will be a short-term agreement. >> the key is we not have another government shutdown and do keep the spending caps in place and don't raise taxes at a time when the economy is still weak and i think we can accomplish that over the next couple days. >> one issue still being debated extending long-term unemployment benefits. last week house mortgage leader nancy pelosi said any deal must include an extension but dick durbin said that is not the case. >> i don't think we've reached that point where we said this is it take it or leave it. what i hear from patty murray, i spoke to her the other night negotiations are making progress, moving in the right direction. >> congress has scheduled to begin its break this friday and not return until january the 7th. >>> well, a week after that deadly commuter train wreck in new york officials are upgrading

"the cycle" starts right now. >> attention american shoppers, it's cyber monday. a great day to buy online health insurance. the obama administration says it's now hit its 90% goal which was its title -- 90% of its goal. i'm no math whiz but 7 million by march, that's a lot getting a error messages. they can handle 50,000 simultaneously and 800,000 visits a day. preliminary reports say 100,000 people signed up in november, nearly four times october's numbers but the official numbers are tba. chris cal in relaying data is still not working well. some americans think they are enrolled but their new insurance company says they have no idea. if the december 23rd deadline is right around the corner, which means happy holidays to you and yours and peter alexander is with us from the white house where the christmas tree arrived on friday. we can see behind you marking world aids day today. peter, is the website fixed? >> reporter:

of view from rand paul of kentucky, saying that by extending it, it's actually a disservice because statistically those who are the longest unemployed are the hardest to employ, so pushing them into a category where they may be less attractive to future employers. democrats say there aren't the jobs in what has been a protected recession and that people need this help. there are state level benefits and federal benefits and a smaller number of people who have exhausted all of that who are really at risk for this when it happens. the deadline, december 28th, is it possible it can get rolled into a budget discussion? that is certainly being discussed but the momentum towards seeing this being a critical part of the discussion has not bubbled up yet. the white house wants to see an extension. democrats are pushing for it. but they are also saying it's possible the big budget issue of keeping the government open to avoid a shutdown, that that would not necessarily have to have this extension to go forward, making it that much harder to make this the kind of critical issue that would mak

's pushed down. there is some secret new plan for paul ryan. anyway, the president's confronted the problems with the law's website. saying it would be vastly improved by december 1st which was yesterday. complaining about errors with registrations. but overall the president's fixer told reporters that it was night and day from where it was on october 1st. well, here's a look at what's been done. traffic problems are tremendously better than they were back in october. the site can now handle roughly 800,000 users every day. that's 800,000. more than two-thirds of the required repairs have been completed. that's a big number when you consider the fact that 600 problems were identified originally. and most importantly the website is far more stable. it's now fully functional more than 90% of the time. so here we have all this news. how's the republican party going to go on this though? they're going to attack the website. the website is beginning to work effectively. what are they going to attack next? >> i think they're going to keep attacking the idea of obama care. they're going to keep say

paul, not dick durbin, which you can find plenty of fodder on that one too. but the bottom line is he didn't think that would scuttle the deal. just explain to people because there's a chance that unemployment benefits could still be extended even if it's not in the deal and people don't necessarily understand that. >> that's right. we can take up the legislation separately, it doesn't have to be baked into the budget deal. i think as long as there's some agreement that has them go side by side before the deadline expires, then we would be able to embrace that. >> so do you -- so it's not a deal breaker from your perspective either to have it in the specific budget deal? >> as long as there's an agreement that it's going happen, then it's not a deal breaker. >> so politico has a piece up right now basically saying the budget talks are worrying for those not in the room, namely senate republicans and house democrats hearing details through the media. it says as angst over the content of the deal grows, the possibilityin greesz that house dems or senate republicans could mount an attack
. the president is talking about republicans like rand paul, from kentucky, who thinks he should run the world. and also rob portman of ohio, who is the doctor of silver spoons. what would you expect from bush's former budget director? on sunday, rand paul said he would have no problem cutting off unemployed americans. >> when you allow people to be on unemployment insurance for 99 weeks, you're causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy, and it really -- while it seems good, it actually it does a disservice to the people you're trying to help. i don't doubt the president's motives. but black unemployment in america is double white unemployment. and it hasn't budged under this president. >> well, it's not going to. because you folks haven't passed a jobs package and the democrats have tried to do that. but, of course, you don't believe in investment. the doctor of denial, rand paul. first, we should point out that the nonpartisan congressional budget office says extending unemployment benefits would actually help the economy. another report from the white hou

is that paul ryan and patty murray, the lead budget negotiators in congress are trying to hammer out a budget deal that would actually encompass 2014 and 2015. what's happening right now the is that it seems like they're pretty close to a deal but it would only reverse about one-third of the cuts under sequestration which are $110 billion a year. beak we're looking at a continuation of more than you know two-thirds of the cuts going forward. so i think that that is going to have a big impact on both military and domestic programs. >> okay. and can you be a little more specific both military and domestic but who gets impacted if these cuts stick around? >> basically it's still unclear. once that they agree on the top line numbers, it goes to congressional appropriators to decide how to distribute that funding. so basically there's going to be a sort of mad scramble between different groups between transportation and housing and you know, every sort of government program to figure out what piece of that pie they're going to get. >> okay. suzy khimm, thank you very much. >>> the american girl st

be great. all of their plans, including paul ryan's 2010 plan, was about breaking down the base and moving people over. one of the things frustrating about this debate is we've gone to a place in politics where we've refused to accept the fact of this reform. the individual market is a place where the recent prices are what they are as we discriminate against the sick and the old and women and people who can't read the fine print of insurance. we are fixing that and it's going to be important that we fix it. it doesn't mean no one will have a tough time in the changeover, and we need to help those folks, but we also need to recognize if we're going to make things better, there is a process of difficulty to do that. >> i'm out of time, but this is really where i think the administration wants to argue the plus side that you've already seen on the affordable care act and argue the real peril of the status quo. i have to leave it there. but thank you both for being here. we're going to come back and talk a little about the catholic church. why the church has turned against the president's hea
, creating an ice storm that could knock out power to thousands. let's check over with paul goodloe. there is not a bright spot in everything i read there, paul. >> welcome to december 2013. this is a wild month so far in terms of weather. we want to start you off with the water vapor imagery. it's like an x-ray or mri, it shows you what's going on in the pinks and purples. the snow across the northern plains but look at the overall flow with the clouds. this is the air from the arctic air from canada spreading across the country over the next three to four days. right now the first push is coming into the west and great news for ski resorts in the west seeing plenty of snow. and a foot of snow already almost a foot in duluth. >> paul, thank you very much. we greatly appreciate it. we're seeing people line up on the stage where the president is expected to speak. a number of these people benefitting from signing up for the affordable health care. let's listen in. >> thank you. good afternoon, my name is monica leaks, in 2007 when i was a 19-year-old college student at the university
15th thanks to this rumored paul murray deal you've been writing about. a positive step forward. you're not as optimistic and don't think enough republicans will rally behind it. don't you think this time around will be different after republicans were so beat up over the government shutdown, or do you think they'll play the same old game? >> that's the question, the sort of deal we're looking at right now that senator nmurray and senator ryan are inching towards, a deal the republicans were not interested in taking, you would unwind a third of the automatic spending cuts scheduled for next year and replace them with some combination of increase in revenues from higher fees on airline passengers and certain other various spending cuts, from federal employee retirement. republicans didn't want to do a deal like this. one possible nearry is they really want more defense spending but it doesn't seem to motivate that many republicans in congress anymore. the other, you felt really burned by the last government shutdown and want to avoid another one. they have a good thing going political
it all. next thing you know, i'm sitting next to paul walker. >>> and the hackers. millions of facebook users, you are not going to like the news we have for you today. i'm krystal ball, and it is not just facebook. twitter, google, yahoo! you name it, are under attack. we'll give you a status update right now in "the cycle." >>> it's 3:00 p.m. in new york, noon on the west coast. fast food workers are walking out in the height of the lunchtime rush. today workers are striking across the nation, more than 100 cities, demanding a higher federal minimum wage. currently these workers are paid $7.25 an hour. if you can find 40 hours a week to be considered full time, that's an annual income of only $15,000. the big companies can like mcdonald's and burger king say their locations are mostly owned and operated by franchises, meaning corporate doesn't control worker pay. but that's not stopping employees from trying. >> hold the burgers and the fries. >> hold the burgers and the fries. >> make our wages super sized. >> make our wages super sized. >> we can't survive on $7.25. >> ain't no powe
of this country. unprecedented day and may rival the size of the funeral and services held for pope john paul ii, a huge day of celebration and security will be extremely tight and a lot of emotion from well wisher here and around the world. >> thank you, ron for that very important update. this weekend much of the subject talk centered around nelson mandela and his lasting impact. >> the world remembers nelson mandela, thousands are turning out in his country as south africa holds a national day of prayer. >> apartheid and first democratic government -- >> in depth look at the world leader whose courage and determination changed the course of world events. >> with that in mind, we would like to turn to craig hill burger, international activist and founder of free the children, focused on education and breaking the cycle of poverty. he's a winner of the nelson mandela leadership award and spent time with africa's greatest son. train the child in the way he should go and when he's old he will not depart from it. my father tells me my first protest about anti-apartheid when i was only two, of cour
from leading republicans. but, you know, e.j., paul wrote in the "new york times" today about republicans and the unemployment benefits and i'm quoting from his article. he wrote in his column, the gop answer to the long-term unemployment is to increase the pain of the long-term unemployed. cut off their benefits and they'll go out and find jobs. how exactly will they find jobs when there are three times as many job seekers as job vacanci vacancies? details, details. little details get in the way of that argument, e.j. >> indeed, they do. i think krugman is right. people are acting as if the unemployment rate is no longer a problem. because it's lower than it used to be. and it is lower than it used to be, but it's 7%. that's a lot of unemployed americans. under president clinton it went below 4%. if unemployment were down near 4%, then the argument that we didn't need to extend it right now, that might hold water. but it holds no water now when so many people are unemployed and there are so many sub-groups where the unemployment group is higher than 7%. many communities where
.s. congressman paul ryan of wisconsin are getting closer to a budget deal. but it won't be anything close to a grand bargain. but murray of the budget committee and ryan the republican chair of the house committee have until december 13th to reach a deal. that's next friday. and politico reports they're inching toward a small scale deal at least. to replace sequester cuts for the next two years. most importantly the deal could potentially reduce the threat of another government shutdown come january 2014. and we'll be right back after this. >>> this the working and will work into the future. my main message today is we're not going back. that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have is let's just go back to the status quo because they haven't presented an alternative. i've always said i will work with anybody to improve this law effectively. you've got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> that's putting a lot in. that was the president on offense very much so today after weeks of dealing with negative headli
. northers led by paul ryan and senator patty murray for democrats are supposed to get a deal done boy the end of next week. joining me now is congressman and assistant democratic leader james clyburn who is involved with this conference. good morning to you, sir. >> thank you so much for having me, chuck. >> tell me where we are. how close are we? are we going to see something on december 13th produced collectively that is supported by murray and ryan? >> i would say we are very, very close yet far away. we are close. >> why do you say you are far away. it sounds like you know what you are negotiating over. is that what you are trying to say? >> that's right. we on the democratic side are very, very leery of putting together any kind of a budget deal that tends to rest too heavily on people who were on fixed incomes and we don't want to see a budget deal that will cost jobs and we want to see a deal that will include unemployment insurance because to get rid of that will cost 200,000 jobs. if you let that die, you want a budget deal that will do something about the sequester. we belie
the press" is back with our political roundtable. here this morning, tom brokaw, al sharpton, paul gigoe and katty kay. now, david gregory. >> we're back from new york. the reverend al sharpton sheer. your book is out now called "the rejected stone." congratulations on that. i want to talk to the group about not really the other side of mandela, just his historical context. he celebrated in death, he celebrated in life, but there is a more divided view on mandela in the anc. senator kennedy on this program back in '86 talking about the push of economic sanctions against south africa when there was political disagreement about that, and indeed, reagan didn't agree. here was senator kennedy in '86. >> what we're interested in doing is achieving the political objectives that desmond tutu has talked about, freeing mandela, freeing detainees. hopefully in the meantime we might get some international group who can go to south africa and look at the 8 to 10,000 detainees, some of whom have been reported beaten to death in the south african prisons. >> tom, this was a different time. cold war is
is moving on. isaac, do you share that reading that paul had, two, three years ago, everybody in washington was old souls on a deficit reduction including the president, himself, now even president obama is showing publicly an inclination to show that warren style populism. >> i think the rhetoric has changed. just to go back to the last seg him, jonathan was saying the tea party has people in washington. there is elizabeth warren. i think if it's going to come, it's going to to him in the next few years. you have the thing with the tea party rhetoric. it was followed by victory. you have the rhetoric. the question is whether people can be elected to washington. >> the tea party the power of the tea party the president talked about this in his interview, he talked ability how they scare, the tea party has scared republicans in republican primaries. solet talk about third way here. give me an idea first of all. we say this term third way, here are democratic members of congress two are affiliated which, the honorary co-chairs, they associate themselves which third way and third way is a part
? the scrap is on. >>> scott paul joins us tonight on this. good to have you with us. the timetable on this is really close. the states on the list have until december 10 to come up with proposals that are going to include, obviously, tax breaks, incentives for boeing moving the triple 7 x project to their state. how do you see this unfolding for the positive for the workers? >> i think the scenario has to change, ed, because you're right. this is ultimately about good, middle class manufacturing jobs. and that's the real value to the u.s. economy of a company like boeing making great planes. and they do make great planes. they make the best planes in the world. they have the best aircraft workers in the world in washington. they wanted to re-negotiate a labor contract a couple years ahead of its expiration. the state of washington was willing to give $9 billion in tax incentives, the largest in the history of the state by far to keep boeing there. and it's not like boeing is in debt. $4 billion in profits last year. good stock price, all of those orders as you indicate, and what i
now is below where it was when harry truman was in office. >> so, paul, if we look at certain states, california, new jersey, new york, they've raised minimum wage requirements, but on a national level, how effective are demonstrations like what we'll see today to help elevate the conversation to where it needs to be? >> i've been following involved with wage campaigns for more than 20 years. i've never seen this level of national focus and momentum, and in particular, states are already starting to act and they're pushing for much more significant increases in the minimum wage that bring it much closer to the historic level. the president and congress have called for $10 an hour. california has approved $10 an hour and then last week, a tech entrepreneur filed a ballot initiative to go to $12 one upping it. other states and massachusetts, illinois, maryland are moving toward ten or more. in the high-cost city they're leading the way. the seatac where the seattle airport is a priefd $15 wage and now seattle, chicago, new york are calling for similar higher minimum wages approaching t
